I saw this butterfly in the garden of the Serra dos Tucanos Lodge in the Tres Picos NP, SE Brazil in September 2013.

I think it is Caligo idomeneus, but would appreciate confirmation or correction.

Thanks

this is probably a good guess, but I will ask Jorge to be sure.
Can you please send me these, it's good to have the dorsal.

This is interesting. Jorge agrees that it is Caligo Idomeneus, but he was surprised, as he didn't think this species was in coastal Brazil. But there is C.idomeneus ariphon from Espirito Santo, see BOA.
